...the Beat-&-Beyond "...brothersisterhood," to quote Second San Francisco Renaissance poet Neeli Cherkovski, that is. As we commemorate the birth of our namesake-inspiration—the great William S. Burroughs—every February, so too we must honor Uncle Bill in death every August. As such, we’ve included some marvelous WSB items in this month’s special, but not only WSB. For the Black Mountain-curious or Devoted Olsonian, we’ve got a plump plate of “Charles-cuterie;” representing the Beat sensibility are items featuring Ed Sanders (including the sought-after “Café Le Metro” issue of the Wormwood Review), Lawrence Ferlinghetti, & Jack Micheline; for a distinctly West Coast sensibility, we’ve got the lauded-by-all-poets, must-read classic “Archetype West” by the great William Everson. All this & more in our August Feature--Click the Slide to Browse!

TMB at EBSN-C 2018!
On Saturday, October 6th, Arthur S. Nusbaum and Third Mind Books delivered the presentation "Burroughs is in New York: William S. Burroughs and the John Tytell Archive" at the 7th annual conference of the European Beat Studies Network.
Third Mind Books acquired John Tytell's archive directly from the legendary historian and pioneering Beat scholar, and are currently curating it for sale to an institution. This presentation contains only a fraction of our findings, as we exhume the minutiae from a half-century's worth of standard-setting scholarship.
